What is a Defense Attorney?

A defense attorney is a lawyer who represents individuals or organizations facing criminal charges or legal accusations. The primary responsibility of a defense attorney is to defend their clients and protect their rights throughout the legal process.

The specific duties of a defense attorney can include the following:

  • Conducting an investigation: A defense attorney will often conduct their investigation of the case, reviewing evidence, interviewing witnesses, and gathering any other relevant information.
  • Developing a defense strategy: The defense attorney will create a defense strategy to present in court based on the evidence and information gathered.
  • Negotiating plea bargains: In some cases, the defense attorney may negotiate a plea bargain with the prosecutor, where the defendant agrees to plead guilty to a lesser charge in exchange for a reduced sentence.
  • Representing the defendant in court: The defense attorney will represent their client in court, presenting arguments and evidence on their behalf.
  • Cross-examining witnesses: During a trial, the defense attorney will cross-examine the prosecution's witnesses to challenge their credibility or expose weaknesses in their testimony.
  • Filing appeals: If the defendant is convicted, the defense attorney can file an appeal to have the verdict overturned or the sentence reduced.

Overall, a defense attorney's primary goal is to protect their clients' rights and ensure that they receive a fair and just legal process.
